The Giddy Up Gala is an auction and fundraiser put on by the Hill Country Education Foundation to raise money for schools in the Four Points area of Austin. It has been going on for a while, and has been quite successful at raising and more importantly using money to directly benefit students and teachers.
This year, I was asked to do a donation for their auction, and thought it would be good to increase the awareness of our little shop if I donated a print, and what better print than the River by Moonlight image that was taken off of the Steiner Ranch boat dock.
Austin Photo Imaging did the print on Aluminum, and it came out great. If you have not been to this shop for printing, you should go. They do fantastic work.
Anyway so Stephanie Johnson was kind enough to take a shot of me with the print, so that I could show it. Thanks Stephanie!
The print that we donated is the first fine art print I have place for sale by auction. It is approx. 30×20, and is a 1 of 1 at that size on Aluminum. We will never print this image at that size on that material again. After the print is sold, I will meet with the new owners to discuss how it will hang in their home, and give them the certificate.
